  • Solid build quality, Capable optional projector attachment, Fast processor, Great sound quality, Intuitive UI
  • The eXpo does an adequate job with daily tasks like email, calls, appointments and media features like music/photos; the pico projector option and the fingerprint scanner are unique features that work well and definitely add to the phone’s geek cred
  • Very fast CPU. Stellar battery life. Excellent slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Optional projector attachment (if it ever comes out)
  • The LG Expo is well designed and boasts a sharp display and excellent QWERTY keyboard. The Windows Mobile 6.5 device also offers Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, and GPS. Its call quality was excellent and the smartphone's general performance was quite snappy
  • Very fast CPU, excellent keyboard, optional projector
  • Smooth looking SClass Interface, Great calling quality, Pocketable form factor, Tactile QWERTY keyboard

Editors Didn't Like

  • Resistive touchscreen, Keyboard design could be better, No 3.5mm headset jack
  • You have to pay almost as much as the price of the (subsidized) phone to be able to use the projecting feature — the one thing that sets the eXpo apart from other smartphones; you have to use a micro-USB adapter to listen to music via wired headphon
  • Missing projector attachment. Stubborn plastic touch screen. Sluggish Web browser. Windows Mobile feels ancient. Proprietary headphone jack
  • The smartphone lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack. There's no dedicated Start menu button, often requiring you to use the stylus. We also wish the Expo had a built-in stylus holder
  • UI isn't top notch, often requires stylus. Battery life isn't good
  • Bulky looking with pico projector, Poor battery life
